About this event

Overview:

While Sgt. Angela Alexander was in Japan on military duty, her husband and four children were in a deadly car crash. Their car fell twenty-five feet off a highway in California and landed upside down on top of two parked vehicles. Their two eight- year-old sons didn't survive. Little did anyone know, both boys had previously written goodbye letters that answered questions that Angela would have wondered about for the rest of her life.

This wasn't the first time Angela experienced a mighty hand from beyond worldly comprehension. Sixteen years prior to the tragedy of her two sons, her husband had suffered a severe brain aneurysm. He instantly lost the ability to read, write, and speak clearly. Preparing for the best, Angela sat by for an eighteen-hour surgery, followed gratefully by an eight-month hospital stay and years of recovery.

Prided on serving a greater good, Angela's experience with miracles changed her passion from military to ministry. The range of the Holy Spirit far surpasses coincidence in this supernatural, twenty-year timeline that works as a reminder for all in need of a softer landing.

Tragedy strikes us all, near and far. Whether you're grieving the death of a loved one, the foreclosure of your home, your health, wealth, marriage, divorce, dreams, or your expectations, the question is, "how do you turn your grief into good grief? How do you turn your mourning into a good morning?
